The East Valley Jewish Community Center has announced the hiring of RSP Architects as the designer for its Tolerance & Holocaust Museum, along with former Tempe Mayor Neil Giuliano as RSP's strategic advisor assigned to the project.

RSP Architects most recently completed the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in Phoenix. A volunteer selection committee chose RSP for its "long history of working on cultural projects that bring great pride to their communities," according to a news release.

The initial fundraiser for the event will be the Jewish Community Center's premiere of the award-winning documentary "Rene & I" at the Chandler Center for the Arts, 7 p.m. Jan. 8. The film tells the story of twins, Rene and Irene, who survived experiments by Josef Mengele after being sent to Auschwitz at age 6.

Tickets cost $25 and are available by calling the JCC at (480) 897-0588 or online at
